Un vin de garde dense, musclé, mais qui garde toute sa finesse : typique du domaine. More info

This Châteauneuf-du-Pape comes from one of the appellation's historic terroirs. In this area, Grenache, Counoise and Mourvèdre benefit from the influence of sandy soil and ideal exposure to the south-east. To craft a fine wine, the domain harvests by hand, with strict sorting, destemming, short maceration and 18-month maturation in young barrels and terracotta pots. Made to be aged somewhat, this wine has a certain aromatic density. It carries notes of cacao, dried fruit, and ripe, dark fruits. Its lovely tannins are voluminous and persistent.

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Santa Duc (Domaine) Les Saintes Vierges Famille Gras serve at a temperature of 16°C. It will pair perfectly with the following dishes: Bœuf bourguignon, planche de charcuterie, Pâté de foie.

Peak: Drink until 2042

    Information about domain Santa Duc

    Domaine Santa Duc enjoys a picturesque and idyllic setting at the foot of the Dentelles de Montmirail. Located in the Gigondas appellation, the Provence vineyard of Domaine Santa Duc has been in the same family for 5 generations. Their philosophy boils down to one word: respect. Respect for the vines they cultivate, respect for the biodiversity and respect for the soil. The domaine thus follows organic and biodynamic methods. The garpes are picked by hand then destemmed entirely or partially depending on the terroir. Maceration is slow and cold so as to give the wines fine tannins and aromatic complexity. Only native yeasts are used during fermentation and the wines are matured on fine lees and bottled unfiltered. As the great Robert Parker said: “Santa Duc combines the muscle, richness and fire of a classic Giogondas with a degree of elegance and purity that many wines of this appellation lack”.
